I have neck pain and stiffness. I have tingling and numbness in hands and fingers and some tingling in buttocks area. I also struggle with anxiety/p attacks. Xrays show degen. In neck. What to do?

Your best bet: Is to review these issues with your primary care doctor. They could be anxiety related but may also be related to another process. A good formal neurologic evaluation is necessary to make sure further evaluation beyond the x-rays you report, if any other testing is warranted. Best of luck.

I'm having tingling sensation on the right side of my face for a day now. I'm also feeling anxiety. Should I be concerned about a stroke?

It is unlikely that: These symptoms represent a stroke, in particular since they have not progressed to more serious findings in 24 hours. This is likely to be anxiety or inadvertent trauma to the facial nerves. It could be early shingles but I suspect you would have more systemic symptoms. If it persists you could get it checked out but I suspect it is nothing serious.

Three years ago I had tingling in my face. Mri came back normal. Tingling has returned and causing me anxiety and fear. Should I be concerned?

Suggest: Would not hurt to re-contact original doctor to discuss possible interventions. There are many relatively benign causes for facial tingling, and if that is all you experience, would not fear an ominous process. Helps to have a thorough exam and comfort from your physician.

I have dep. &anxiety treated for 1year, the lats 2weeks I have been feeling my face left side tingling and lips. Is that normal? I take Lexapro (escitalopram) 20mg

I have dep. &anxiety treated for 1year, the lats 2weeks I have been feeling my face left side tingling and lips. Is that normal? I take Lexapro (escitalopram) 20mg

NO!!!: May need to consider a variety of things like are you hyperventilating because this can lead to the sensation of numbness. Any other new medications that have been added? Is there any drooping that may indication bell's palsy (a virus) or maybe a small stroke? Did you Lexapro (escitalopram) just go to generic you may have a reaction to the generic formulation. See you physician.

Can anxiety cause a tingling sensation left side of face left arm and left calf on and off today. No other symptoms. If I'm busy I feel it less.

Can anxiety cause a tingling sensation left side of face left arm and left calf on and off today. No other symptoms. If I'm busy I feel it less.

See that you have a: # of medical conditions. I would not assume that the tingling sensation you are experiencing is due to anxiety. The reason you may feel symptom less when you are busy is that it distracts you from focusing on the sensation. Take care.

I've been feeling tingling off & on, both sides of my face near sideburns & ears. No numbness or anything. I do have anxiety. But I'm on pills.

I've been feeling tingling off & on, both sides of my face near sideburns & ears. No numbness or anything. I do have anxiety. But I'm on pills.

Could be anxiety: Episodes of anxiety can cause hyperventilation, which can produce tingling sensations. So can a variety of medication side effects. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist about your meds and whether these sensations could be due to your medicaition. If so, you could try a different drug, with fewer side effects. But talk with your doctor if these sensations continue. Good luck!

Out of the blue, I get tingling in top / back of my head/brain, is it serious? Went to the doc he said anxiety can cause this. Could it be tumor?

Out of the blue, I get tingling in top / back of my head/brain, is it serious? Went to the doc he said anxiety can cause this. Could it be tumor?

Maybe, not likely: Many people "hold" or express tension with their body, particularly with anxiety. Treating anxiety with lifestyle changes, cognitive-behavioral therapy and perhaps medication will be great first steps. Your doctor can help you monitor changes in this symptom while you target the anxiety. Symptom checklists can help you measure the response to treatments. Revisit your doc to develop a plan soon.

Could you have tingling of the face or hands, plus chest pain, due to anxiety or should I worry about heart problems?

Could you have tingling of the face or hands, plus chest pain, due to anxiety or should I worry about heart problems?

Can be similar: Anxiety can cause all your symptoms and even mimic a heart attack. Do you have any symptoms while exercising? Are you having anxiety/panic attacks. Sudden episodes of loss of control. Idk much about you and if you have any cardiovascular risk factors. But, I will advice to seek doctor help. It will help you having a concrete diagnosis.

People get paranoid about brain tumors. Because of tingling sensations on face but if u have bad anxiety is normal to have tingling in the same spot?

Multiple answers: Several physicians have recently answered similar questions from you about this. We do understand that you are anxious. We've also suggested that you see your primary care physician, since you''re very concerned about your health. Specific treatment for anxiety will be important for you also, along with any examinations or tests to rule out other possible causes of your symptoms.

Ekg/Stressecho norm, bp130/80, agat score 0.5, EKG norm. Tingling in left side of face, arm and leg. Should I go to ER? Is it still cardio or anxiety?

Non cardiac pain: Not all tingling in the left arm is cardiac in origin. More than that, you have symptoms on the whole left side of the body, so it does not sound like cardiac. Also, you had a normal stress test. I am not sure about the AGAT score--is it the general ability test score? It may be anxiety related, but also would like to rule out neurological reasons. What is the reason for the Plavix (clopidogrel)?
